Well I think I might be out of the hatch a long. I had 48 eggs plus another 24 in two incubators, 24 of were due to go into lockdown on the 28th, unfortunately today we lost our power for 5 hours. The temps inside the bators got down to 75 even though I had them wrapped in 2 blankets. I had to wait for a friend to get home from work who has a couple of Sportsmans with extra room and took them over there and put them in. What do you suppose the chances of them hatching are, I am heartbroken over this. We are experiencing 45-50 mile a hour winds and it is really cold today, I think that is why the temps dropped so fast. Now I have to look around for more eggs to hatch.
I have read about eggs hatching with longer outages and cooler temperatures.
Don't give up. Candle them tomorrow.
